The Quest Profiler®

Behavioural Characteristics Assessor

The Quest Profiler® is one of the most widely used personality questionnaires in the UK and is used by many of Britain's largest businesses in their selection and development processes. This very effective personality assessment is trait-based and is specially designed for use in the workplace to make recruitment and development decisions much simpler.

Many organisations still rely on interviews to assess behavioural characteristics, but all too often this is done in a less than standardised and objective manner. Additionally, whilst the interview process can be excellent at measuring competencies such as oral communication skills, it is less reliable at predicting many other important factors of behaviour.

How does a personality assessment work?

Whether you are looking to complement your existing psychometric portfolio or introduce profiling to your organisation for the first time, you will find that our cost-effective pricing (no licence fees or lock-in contracts) together with great customer service is hard to beat.

This has helped make The Quest Profiler® one of the fastest-growing personality questionnaires in the UK, used for both selection and development by some of Britain's biggest companies. Many organisations still rely on interviews to assess behavioural characteristics, but all too often this is done in a less than standardised and objective manner. Additionally, whilst the interview process can be excellent at measuring competencies such as oral communication skills, it is less reliable at predicting many other important factors of behaviour.

The Quest Profiler® is incredibly easy to use and is extremely well-suited for the recruitment and development of both individual participants and larger groups of candidates. There are three types of reports available, the details of which can be found below - one used mainly for Recruitment and Selection, another for Individual Development of existing staff and a third being a Team Report, looking at the characteristics of a whole group. Each of these reports is available at three levels: Standard, Full, and Premium. These reports have varying levels of content and vary in cost accordingly. In addition to this, you can customise the Premium report's suggested development interventions (training recommendations etc.) to match exactly what you offer.

We have been working with eras for many years now and specifically use the 360 function regularly. The 360 function is fantastic as we can amend it to suit whatever we need. It's easy to use and produces really useful information in a very professional report. When working with eras I've personally found them to be extremely responsive and very helpful, they go out of their way to support and find solutions.
